    :cry:my poor little man is so sick, he is constantly hungry but can't keep his milk down because hes got the flu, diarrhea and is being sick all time. i have changed his clothes 3 times so far today but the first time he pooped so bad it filled two nappies and his clothes the other two times it was because he was drenched in sick! he is so snuffly and constantly sneezing (wiping his snotter on me too :dohh::rofl:) he has got bigger bags under his eyes than me after 3 days with no sleep! my poor little man, the doctors say all they can do is give me 'Rapolyte'

    any advice what else i can do to help my little babi feel any better, i give him plenty of kisses and cuddles (which is how i caught the bloody flu :dohh:) :( x

    Oh no :( Sounds like you're doing everything he needs you to do! Did you get some of that stuff from the doctor though? Not heard of it but I assume it's to replace fluid if he's got diarrhoea so he doesn't get dehydrated?

    Hope he's better soon :hugs: x

    :hugs: its awful when they are poorly. Watch he doesnt get too hot or dehydrated this can be life threatening for babies. If you are worried take him to A&E to be sure

    :hugs:

    If he's really dehydated he'll be weeing a lot less (might also be quite yellow when he does wee as it'll be more concentrated). Young babies also have a soft spot (diamond shaped but just above the forehead) which can dip down when they're dehydrated, but the skull bones close over it as they grow so I'm not sure if you'll still be able to see it.

    As long as he's still feeding a bit and you're giving him the stuff from the doctor I'm sure he'll be fine :hugs: x
